This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

The event will include Christmas carolling, sleigh rides, roasted chestnuts, hotdogs and hot chocolate

“It’s just a sense of the old-fashioned Christmas …just being outside this time of year, everyone really enjoys it. It’s a lot of family fun,” said Teresa Crate, director of community services for the Rotary Clubs.

An Old Fashioned Christmas takes place between 6-8 p.m., and all of the activities are free of charge, so everyone is encouraged to attend.

“The Rotary Clubs of Dawson Creek put this on as one of our favourite things to do every year for the community,” said Crate. “The community donates so much money to the Rotary Clubs, and this is just one of our little ways of thanking everyone who donates to Rotary in everything we do.”

It looks as if Jack Frost won’t be nipping at any feet on either evening, as the temperature is forecast to only dip down to a low of minus 10 degrees Celsius on Tuesday.

An Old Fashioned Christmas follows a free Christmas dinner the Rotary Clubs hosted on Sunday evening. Crate said about 300 guests attended the dinner, which featured turkey or ham with all of the fixings prepared and served by about 40 volunteers. There was also live entertainment and photos with Santa for the children.
